27 Feb Plant a Monarch Butterfly Waystation NOW! Spring, 2019
Early spring (March) is a critical time to plant native nectar plants in your garden! Have plenty of flowering plants for monarch butterflies (and bees!) to feed on as they
arrive after overwintering (semi-hibernating) either on the West Coast or down in Michoacán, Mexico! They will wake up and be very hungry. Let’s make sure they not only have the milkweed they need to lay their eggs on, but the nectar plants to feed them.
Here is a great blog on how to actually PLANT A MONARCH BUTTERLY WAYSTATION!
